What is this lawsuit about?

A settlement ("Settlement") has been proposed in a class action lawsuit pending in San Diego County Superior Court ("Court") titled Seegert v. P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Inc., et al., Case No.37-2017-00016131-CU-MC-CTL (the "Action"). The Action alleges that Defendant P.F.

Plaintiff sought civil penalties and attorneys' fees and costs, among other relief. P.F. Chang's denies violating California Civil Code section 1747.08 or any wrongdoing and any liability whatsoever.

Chang's Restaurant from May 3, 2016 through February 22, 2019, during which a Credit Card Transaction Form was used that contained a space that allowed the credit card holder to fill in his or her personal identification information ("Class Members"). Excluded from the Class are Defendant, its officers, directors, employees, and attorneys, and the judge presiding over the Action.
